Re: Larger part won't print properly

Well I think I know why these haven't printed, the resin. As I've been printing a lot of very small parts I haven't needed to top up the tank with resin, so it's been in the tank a while, getting dust etc. I did a very large print and had to top up the tank, I noticed that the resin in the tank was ...

Larger part won't print properly

Hi all I'm having a frustrating time with some very small parts I'm printing on my Saturn 2 I did a teat print of the collet and it printed fine. This has a 0.5mm blind hole in the middle. Then I added a thread handle etc. and printed it, the 0.5mm hole is blocked. I've checked the part in Chitubox ...

Re: Adding colour to resins

Well I've added black to the smoky black and have done a few prints.
One thing is obvious, you have to mix the dye in really well. I put it in a bottle and shook vigorously it for a few minutes just before use.
The prints turned out really black.

Adding colour to resins

Hi all I want to print a part in black, but really dark black. The part is a light baffle so it has to stop the light. I can't find a truly black resin, they all seem to be a bit translucent. One option is to add a black tint to the resin, you can buy them in different colours. Has anybody tried thi...

Re: editing ctb file

I was wondering if you could pause it manually, if you want to stop in the middle that would be 50%.
You would also need to clean the print as you would have the original resin on the print and it would mix with the new colour as soon as it starts to print again.

Re: Anycubic photon

Hi. I also have an Anycubic photon. I've replaced the FEP and also bought 2 trays to use with different resins. I've had it a few years now and its done loads of prints, I use it for work and home so it gets a lot of use. I think I can still get parts for it here in Spain. I recently got an Elegoo S...

Thanks
I presented one to the winner of Poker on Sunday night, he was over the moon to win it.
I put an M16 bolt inside to give them some weight, it made a big difference

Print distorted by the alcohol.

I sometimes leave my prints in the alcohol for a while before I clean them with a brush and take them out to be cured, usually only a few hours, or at most a day. I 3D printed a small bracket and left it in the alcohol over the weekend, when I took it out it was all distorted: Photo 10-7-23, 15 36 1...

Re: Good on one side, blurry opposite site

I'm guessing it's the side with supports that isn't the best quality.
I've done a similar shaped part with text and placed it flat on the bed, it turned out perfect.
The support side is never the best, are you able to get it without supports?

Re: Coffee Chat 2023

I'm making prototype for work and 3 frog trophies for a club for there fiesta competitions. Best at Poker, best at Padel, and finally best drunk.
It's a club of young lads if you hadn't guessed. I'm enjoying making the trophies as I have a free hand.
I'll post fotos when they are finished.

You say you printed at 45°, can you show us how it looked in the slicer software.

Re: Ratio of cross section areas for sufficient unsticking strength?

Yes splitting it in 2 is an option, don't forget to leave a small gap between the parts otherwise they might not go together.
